Today, we continued learning the first five books of the Old Testament and question three from our catechism. Did some reading and a writing worksheet and Lillie successfully counted to 50 by herself with no help, so instead of spending the rest of the week on it, we'll go ahead and begin skip counting.
Wednesday is our science experiment day. Since we studied alligators on Monday, I decided to do the floating egg experiment to show density and to tie in with the fact that alligators live in fresh water and the differences between fresh and salt water. I got this experiment from Ms. Lee's Kindergarten Experiments. It's very simple. Drop and egg in a glass of tap water. It should sink. This is because the egg is denser than the water.
Then some salt water...The verdict: Salt water is "shoo nasty".
